After more than a month of debate, the City Council tonight is expected to decide how to spend $108,405 in state crime-fighting funds. In September, the Citizens Option for Public Safety program, which is known as COPS, allocated $100 million in state funds to cities based on population. San Clemente's share could be used to improve traffic enforcement, buy a trailer-mounted radar to monitor car speeds, or improve the Police Department's investigative unit.

The use of a powerful new DNA process last year to help Orange County investigators arrest a suspected serial killer in a 17-year-old case has paid off in another way. The district attorney's office said Wednesday that using new technology to make a discovery in an old crime helped the county win a $300,000 state grant to reopen other unsolved killings and violent sex cases.
